As 45th President and leading Republican presidential contender Donald Trump concluded his first campaign rally in Waco, Texas, he made a new statement in regards to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) who is potentially bringing an indictment against him.
“I think they’ve already dropped the case,” Trump stated, adding, “It’s a fake case. Some fake cases, they have absolutely nothing.”
Following these comments, Fox News Digital reached out to the Trump campaign for comment to which campaign spokesman Steven Cheung said that it was a “witch-hunt.”
“This has been dropped because everyone knows this was a partisan witch-hunt by a radical, leftist DA that sought to politically weaponize the Justice system to influence an election,” Cheung explained.
As previously reported by the DC Enquirer, chaos was reigning in the District Attorney’s office and doubts were being raised about the wisdom of bringing their weak case forward.
Sources within the office told The New York Post that Bragg was concerned following the testimony of former Cohen lawyer Bob Costello last Monday which could lead to the grand jury voting against an indictment.
“The only thing I’m doing is trying to tell the truth to the grand jurors because I read all these lies in the media that are being promoted by one side,” Costello said to the press following his testimony. “Listen if they want to go after Donald Trump and they have solid evidence, so be it. But Michael Cohen is far from solid evidence.”
“I wouldn’t have touched a guy like Michael Cohen, especially if he’s a convicted perjurer,” added the former deputy chief of the criminal division in the Southern District of New York.
Due to the innate weakness in the case and Costello’s testimony, assistant district attorneys are reportedly “shaking their heads” about Bragg’s judgment in bringing the case.
”They don’t understand how this case is going forward,” the source said. “These ADAs are not fans of Trump but they are professional lawyers and know the law.”‘
The grand jury is meeting again today, however, given the challenges that Bragg is facing with bringing an indictment, it is likely that President Trump is right and the case against him has been dropped.
